Great Truck — Easy to drive and especially to park compared to full size truck. Good for light cargo up to 1,000 lbs and can tow up to 6,300 when equipped with a tow hitch. Great to handle most jobs a truck would be required to do without breaking the bank compared to the cost of a full size.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: good room for driver plus passengers

Cons: it's a truck.  Not as peppy as a nice car but great for a truck.

Good Mid-sized Truck — Overall, the truck is well-built and feels solid. It is an excellent truck for small to medium sized jobs. It has good power and towing capacity. Other than the below average fuel economy, I have been happy with the vehicle.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: Handles well, good power, comfortable ride

Cons: poor gas mileage

Comfortable Off-road Vehicle — This truck is good in every aspect; from driving in town to off-roading. I had absolutely no trouble off road in this truck. I would definitely buy this truck again and I would always recommend it to anyone looking for a reliable, comfortable truck.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Small, lightweight, powerful, reliable, very good off road

Cons: Plain look, expensive parts,

Awesome Truck — I liked the reliability, strength, speed and handling of the truck. Very easy, comfortable truck to drive with very good four wheel drive. The only thing i wish is that the box on the truck was bigger for more storage.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Fast, strong spirited truck. Strongest motor of all midsize trucks.

Cons: Box on truck is not very large.

Total Failure. I Bought It To Last More Than 120k Miles. — The Frontier has been a good truck up until an engineering change in 2005. Now Frontiers and Pathfinder's transmissions are failing. Nissan was sued and repaired the transmissions up to 80K miles. My Frontier's transmission has just been diagnosed with failure at 120K. What happened to Nissans lasting to 200K miles? No more. This is my 2nd Nissan transmission failure (98 Nissan Quest) No more Nissan for me!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Nice Cargo room inside. Good stereo system. Lots of Power

Cons: Transmission failure is a common occurance for the Frontier. Turns out Nissan was sued by consumer groups but the warranty extension only goes to 80K miles.

Great Truck!!! — One of the best vehicles I have ever owned and would by another Nissan in a minute. It has good power, handling and acceleration. I have owned the truck for 6 years and the body still looks great and it has no signs of rust on it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The truck is reliable, good on gas and maintenance and upkeep costs are low.

Cons: Suspension could be a little smoother and should only be available as a crew cab.

If You Want A Great Small Truck With Decent Capabilities This Is The One To Buy — this is a truck that handles like a decent sports car ride is reasonably firm and it is very roll stiff. braking is decent until loaded down to the max capacity. within a few weeks of purchasing it I had a windshield crack from pressure caused by it being installed improperly but it was replaced under warranty without any problems. It has had a reocurring problem with the air bag sensor which triggers the air bag fault light. this occurs almost every winter during cold spells of - 40c it is a factory recalled problem and it has been fixed every time under warranty. this is a comfortable truck for me to drive it handles extremely well for a truck and accelerates like no other small truck I have had the pleasure to drive..it tows quite well although fuel economy goes downhill fast as the load increases.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: it handles great and is fun to drive until you get the tickets :)

Cons: for a small truck the fuel economy could be much better

Quiet and smooth ride. Easy transfer from 4x2 to 4x4. No car play but that’s not important to me. It’s comparable to Toyota Tacoma. V6 310HP Read More
